Austin Opera’s Access Opera: Turandot curriculum is an innovative multi-media based unit, complete with TEKS aligned lessons, activities, assessments and an Animated Listening Map. This curriculum is designed so you can teach Turandot in the time frame that works best for you and your students. Designate an entire class period and share the complete lesson using the accompanying PowerPoint. Teach it in shorter sections. Here is what that might look like:
- Day 1 – Background (composer info, synopsis) and first listen of featured music selection
- Day 2 – Listen a 2nd time, including suggested activities/assessments from the lesson
- Day 3 & beyond – Listen to some of the alternate versions; try a new activity/assessment; explore SEL connections; Go over Audience Etiquette materials
